The Last Post

As my readers will already know I moved to a new house (bungalow) last year. Much work, updating, d. i. y. and a vast amount of gardening and landscaping needed doing to the property. Most of the gardening to the rear of the property has now been completed just as the Wintery weather begins to take hold. A good sized vegetable plot is one of the features in the back garden prepared and ready to be utilised starting with next Springs sowing and planting. With this in mind I spent a couple of weeks last month tidying up N1 plot before deciding to give it up just over a week ago. Due to the amount of work on the house and gardens this year my blog posts have been just about none existent. Over the past seven years I have enjoyed reading many other allotment/gardening blogs and meeting/talking to lots of other gardeners on the "net". I hope my blog has been of interest and some use too, to all who have spent their time looking in on it. Good luck and best wishes to all you lovely people. May you grow everything except old. There's Always Tomorrow!!!

  3. You have been really kind to new plotters - you should see the state some of the plots on our site are left in. Aren't you going to blog about your new garden?

    1. I would hate to think that after working a plot for so long that it would fall into disrepair, but many plots I've seen are left in a terrible condition. I'm thinking about blogging about my garden, possibly in the new year. Just wondering where to start. I think the plan of attack will be veggies and flowers/shrubs that are useful to bees/birds etc and not the plants that have been modified by mankind for self appraisal, many of which are ignored by bees and various other wildlife.

    1. Plotting and holidy-ing is probably healthy as you say. I find blogging rather time consuming lately but its always a good reminder of accomplishments, successes and failures when it comes to gardening. Best wishes.

Rooko's April Top 10 Tips & Tryouts

1. Clear away spent flower heads from spring flowering bulbs such as hyacinth & daffs. Don't cut away or discard the foliage as it will replace the bulbs energy for its next flowering.

2. If the weather in your area has been dry enough lately and your soil is not wet and heavy, now is the time for some rotavating/digging, adding compost/manure as required to the soil.

3. Air temperatures are still relatively unpredictable in my neck of the woods at present, it may be worth checking the germination temperatures of various seeds before sowing takes place.

4. Easter weekend was the traditional time for getting your potato tubers into the ground. Don't put them into wet soil and remember Easter weekend is early this year so another couple of weeks wait isn't a problem.

5. More overnight frosts have been happening in this part of the country recently, compared to the past few years. So if you are sowing planting this month keep cloches or other plant protection equipment a…
